The Project in Ageing is the Capstone component for the Master of Ageing. This subject is designed to provide students with the opportunity to consolidate the knowledge and specialised skills acquired from the coursework into a final project which provides a culmination of learning within the course. Students will apply the academic knowledge and skills acquired throughout the Master of Ageing to a project that addresses a contemporary issue in ageing. Students will produce a substantial original piece of work, to be formally presented and reported on at the conclusion of the project. This subject requires students to exercise autonomy and expert judgement in the planning and execution of this final project, which will help students further develop and consolidate their analytical, research, and problem-solving skills.
Intended learning outcomes
- Plan and execute a substantial original project on a selected contemporary issue in ageing.
- Apply, integrate and synthesise knowledge and skills acquired throughout the course into developing a project that addresses a contemporary issue in ageing.

- Demonstrate problem-solving whilst working with potentially unstructured and incomplete information.
